"We launched six programs today. The programs are a manifestation of Indonesia`s commitment to global development," Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa said.

The programs are Indonesia`s South-South and Triangular cooperation Forum, Publications on Indonesia`s Technical Cooperation Capacities, an International Training Programme on Post-Harvest Technologies on Fruits and Vegetables, an International Training Programme on Water Management for African countries, a Workshop on the Strengthening of Technical Cooperation through Public Private Partnership, and the Dissemination of Implementing Agencies` Facilities to Development Partners.

"The programs also serve Indonesia`s contributions to the common effort to achieve global prosperity," Marty added.

He said this effort is more than a token of solidarity among developing countries, but also an important and concrete means to enhance the well being of all people around the world.

"This event is more relevant today, when we are in the penultimate lap to the finish line to meet the MDGs targets in 2015," he noted.

He added that there are three reasons why South-South and Triangular Cooperation works best for the cause of development.

"First, South-South and Triangular Cooperation serves as a model for the genuine global partnership for development. Second, this cooperation can bring about more transparency and accountability," he said.

And the last reason is because this cooperation can be precisely tailored to the needs of each developing country.

"Because developing countries face similar challenges, their sharing of experiences can be particularly enlightening and fruitful."

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs also joined with other government agencies, including the National Development Planning Board (Bappenas), The National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB), Ministry of Agriculture, and Ministry of Public Works.

At least 14 countries have joined this cooperation. They are Fiji, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Timor Leste, Cambodia, Algeria, Egypt, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Iran, Mexico, Madagascar, Sudan, and Zimbabwe.(*)
